1. I’d like to move it move it.
You may have sung along to this song, but mind you this is helpful. To make sure that your pug is healthy, make sure to have him his daily exercise. May it be a short stroll in the morning or a light run at night. This can help burn some of the unhealthy fats he must have developed over time.
2. You are what you eat.
Definitely true. Of course, every fur parents loves it when they see their baby enjoying his meal. But, pugs have this tendency to eat whatever food you give them. They can go with any dog food but it is best if its a little moist as they enjoy it a lot. Take note also that for pug puppies less than 6 months old, they should be fed three times a day. As they grow, you have to adjust their diet based on their size. For the best food formula, you may want to consult with your vet as they can give the best advice based on the size, age, and weight of your pug.
3. Shake it off.
Well, the moment you got yourself a pug, you know that you will be seeing his hair everywhere. Yes, it’s no surprise that the pug sheds his hair every time. Therefore, you have to be wary of what time of grooming products to use. Especially when combing his hair, be sure to use metal tooth comb. You can simultaneously massage him while combing his hair softly.
4. Hit me with your best shot.
Nope, never try to hurt your pug. But, make sure to hit the right spot when you try to clean his ears, paws, and muzzles. Try to look at those cute folds on his face. Don’t you just want to kiss it? But, it may have a funny smell. Those folds can actually hide the dirt or other times the debris of his food. Thus, if you are not patient to clean those folds, dirt might stick and can cause bad odor or worst, irritations. You can use wet wipes but make sure that these are alcohol-free.
5. Health is wealth.
Of course, you never want him to get sick. Not only because you can’t bear the sight of him in pain, but also it is expensive, isn’t? Well, to start, go for a clean environment. Ensure that the floor is clean all the time. If he is already potty trained then no need to worry where he pees. But just to be sure, clean the area with mild soap and water. Next, if your pug is still a puppy, make sure to get him all the vaccination shots needed. Even with his as a senior, make sure that his vaccines are still up to date.
There are many ways to care for your pug. But the most important is the time spent with them. Remember, he is the type that becomes overwhelmed whenever you are around, even if it means you just sit there watching TV as long as he sits next beside you or into your lap.
